$5,87533% Off


Pastel / painting of an Androgenous Nude by Edgar Scauflaire (Belgium,1893-1960). Signed on lower right and dated, 1944. Unframed dimensions: 18 x 15". Piece is matted and framed. Scauflaire combines ambiguous sexuality reflective of the decadent period late in the 1920s with a decorative painting style that draws from Art Deco, modern neoclassicism and the Neue Sachlichkeit in this stunning portrait completed during the chaos of World War II. Edgar Scauflaire was born in Liège in 1893. Inspired to become an artist at age eleven by the painter Daco for whom he posed, he studied at l’Académie des Beaux-Arts de Liège where he was a student of Auguste Donnay, Adrien de Witte and Francois Maréchal, Emile Berchmans and Ludovic Bauès. Other than his personal exhibitions in the main Belgian cities, and in Paris Scauflaire also participated in most of the official exhibitions of Belgian art in foreign countries. He exhibited in la Biennale de Venise in 1924, 1938 and 1948, in la Biennale de Sao Paulo in 1951 and 1953, in the Biennale de Menton in 1953, in the Salon des Tuileries in 1949, and at the Exposition Universelle in Brussels in 1958. Works of his can be found in the collections of the Belgian State and in the museums in Brussels, Liège, Verviers, Seraingm La Louvière, Strasbourg, Montbar, Bale, and Beunos Aires. He was awarded le Prix de l’Association Industrielle de Santa-Margarita Ligure in 1950. He was the founding member of l’Association pour les Progrès Intellectuels et Artistique de la Wallonie. Scauflaire also executed many paintings on glass, frescos, tapestries and other decorative murals. References: Modern and Contemporary Art, Expressionism, New Objectivity,
